Cortegiani A, Gregoretti C, Neto AS, et al; LAS VEGAS Investigators, PROVE Network, Clinical Trial Network of the European Society of Anaesthesiology. Br J Anaesth. 2019;122:361-369.

The observed increase in postoperative pulmonary complications was explained by the type of surgery and underlying patient characteristics. This study adds to the body of evidence on risks associated with care outside of usual working hours.
